Do you also completely dislike loud settings and areas ?

Do you struggle with social anxiety ?

How do you deal with online interactions involving people who don't understand autism ?

1. I dont mind loud noises and settings like theme parks or music events but sometimes they can be over whelming.

2. I struggle with social anxiety sometimes because of certain pet peves

3. I try to to explain to them what autism is, even tho it just means that your brain works differently

I dont have trouble finishing what i have on my plate. Also i am good at finishing tasks like homework. I sometimes have trouble finishing a conversation. As i am an art student i always finish drawings before the dead line, and i am still a virgin

I'm a high functioning autistic too. (I don't "have" autism as it's not a disease you can 'catch'. I just am autistic)

So anyone who has social anxiety to the point they can't speak or have panic attacks is Autistic? What treatment do doctors suggest for this as this seems a very common problem these days.

Are self image issues and Autism related? Or an Autistic person is not necessarily insecure about his/her appearance but rather is incapable/unaware of dealing with social situations?

Do you have any favourite stims or sensory things?

Also, what’s you opinion of those sequin things (you get them as key rings, notebook cushions etc) which are different colours depending on which way you rub the sequin?


(I know, odd question!)
